Learning to Use AgiSoft PhotoScan – Work Flow

So I’m learning to create 3D assets using Agisoft Photoscan. Here’s my current work flow.

1. Capture

Right now I’m using our Sony FDR AX100. It’s sharper than my cell phone which helps with output images.
I tore up a green-ish pillow and mounted it to the wall with duck-tacks. I also draped it over a stool. I plan to use this as a green screen.

I took 65 photos, slowly turning my wife’s ugly mug each time. I probably could get away with half as many images at the least..

2. Source Photos

Here are what the source photos looked like once complete.

3. Cropping with Adobe Lightroom

I load all the source images into lightroom and perform a quick crop and center.

4. Output High Contrast Versions for Masking with Lightroom

I then bump the contrast and colors a touch in lightroom to make masking easier.

5. Masking with Photoshop Actions and Automation

I open 1 high contrast image and create an Action to mask and save the image. I then use Photoshop automation to apply and output all image masks to a separate folder.

6. Import “flat” cropped images into Photoscan

7. Apply masks

8. Camera Locations

I took this picture at the end of the process, which is why it shows the mug fully complete.
